Fabrica Hill

Published 12th of November, 2017

We've driven past Fabrica Hill many times over the years, and often wondered what was up there. (It's the area of land diagonally opposite The Mall, in case you didn't know). After comments and photos started appearing on the forum about the erection of a raised walkway, we decided a visit was overdue. With no expectations of what we would see when we got there, other than a vague feeling of disappointment that despite what it looked like, they weren't building a roller coaster, this is what we found.

Interesting Ruins


To find a place to park, we approached from the direct of Kato Paphos, coming up below the big church of Agioi Anargyroi. You can park in an area just before the dual carriageway. This is the first view you see.

Bags Of Gravel


To me it looks like they are building a roller coaster. The official line, though, is that it is a raised walkway.

Walkway Route


Another guess would be a tramline. Given that Cypriots often don't seem to like walking, I could certainly believe this.

End Of The Line?


This is where the construction ends. You are deposited on the top of the hill. So what can you see once you are here?

To The Right


Well, the main path splits in two. We took the right hand route, sloping down slightly. I was guessing it would loop round to the other route anyway.

Beyond Fabrica Hill

A few weeks ago we blogged about Fabrica Hill. We went to find out about the new walkway, and to see what was on the hill. The blog was very popular, but left people chomping at the bit for more. Why didn't you feature the amphitheatre? Where will the walkway end? Why are there never any hedgehogs in your blogs? Most of these questions were asked. So the other day, we went back to find the answers. Not only that, but we also found that most elusive of creatures, an artist's impression of what the walkway will look like when it is complete. So read on to find out...

When relatives visited us a few weeks ago, we took them to some of the local tourist must-see sites. A definite highpoint was the visit to the Archaeological Park. We were especially lucky because it was spring time and all the wild flowers were in bloom...

Paphos Caving

A few months ago we read a report in the papers about an interesting cave that lurked within Paphos itself, behind an old church. After a bit of investigation I found it, and did a bit of spelunking.
